Research Review: OASIS 1 – Retrospective Analysis of Four Different Microprocessor Knee Types
Date and Time
Credits: 1 (S) CEU through ABC.
Category I science credits will be granted to those O&P Clinicians certified with ABC.
Conducting meaningful clinical research is critical for providing effective patient care and informing clinical decisions across disciplines. As research continues to evolve and advance in the field of O&P, such clinical insight is paramount to helping support professionals in determining the best possible treatment for each individual who requires O&P services.
For this session, we will dive into a new study recently published by Hanger Clinic’s Department of Clinical and Scientific Affairs. A first-of-its kind, OASIS 1, compares four different microprocessor knee models as they relate to outcomes in the areas of mobility, satisfaction, quality of life, and injurious falls.
Join us as research and clinical leaders reflect on the current state of literature surrounding this topic, including findings and implications as they relate directly to the OASIS 1 study.
About OASIS: Outcomes ASsessment and DISsemination (OASIS) 1 is the first in what is intended to be a series of studies comparing the effectiveness of a variety of orthotic and prosthetic components across different patient groups to ultimately impact and enhance patient outcomes.
Upon completion of this program, learners will be able to:
- Discuss the current state of literature as it relates to comparative data among MPKs
- Compare four different microprocessor knee types as they relate to various constructs
- Discover ways in which such clinical insight can inform patient care and treatment options for individuals requiring O&P services
